The Half Girlfriend trailer starring Arjun Kapoor as Hindi-speaking lad from Bihar, Madhav Jha, and Shraddha Kapoor as fancy flighty Riya Somani, is out and it’s a copybook romance. This is Chetan Bhagat's third novel to be adapted to a film after 2 States and 3 Idiots this time round Mohit Suri is directing the film.
Half Girlfriend opens in St Stephen’s College where small town boy Madhav Jha keep a tight watch on the flighty basketball player Riya. She clears the air saying that he Madhav cannot be her boyfriend but she can be his half Girlfriend hence the title. Most of the film is a direct adaptation of the book. It is 2 states meets Aashiqui 2 meets all the other collage romances we have seen over the past few years. Boy meets girl whirlwind romance follows breakup makeup and then finally they become a pair….
In Half Girlfriend what does the trick is the film’s music which is quite romantic and peppy at the same time. Half Girlfriend is set to hit the screens on 19 May.
